both of these speeches, joining me now, the host of msnbc's "hardball," chrismatthews and msnbc contributor melissa harris-perry. chris, your reaction to first the president's speech. >> well, i thought the president used a couple of words, fair and balance, fox commercial, interesting, fair, then balance, then fair and balance over and over again to make a case for his position. i thought he came off as the good mother in the old testament story of king solomon who was willing to give the baby to the other mother, whether the dishonest mother was willing to kill the baby than have the other have it. i think he's leaning towards compromise and the republicans are leaning against compromise. there was a dishonest statement by boehnor, there was no -- as you were suggesting, there was no bipartisan action by the congress on the republican proposal. that vote in the house, i believe, was 234 votes for the cut, cap, and balance bill and only 5 democrats within that 234, which was, in itself, up to republican support in the house. i don't know who's writing his stuff. we had a senato

for chris matthews, leading off the adult in the room, that's how president obama is trying to portray himself. the calm daddy trying to discipline a group of unrule children on the other side of pennsylvania avenue. the president again positioned himself as the sensible centrist insisting the public agrees with him on not just cuts but taxes. and that republicans in congress are dug in for idealogical reasons. as we all know how it's going to end with the debt ceiling being raised, no real big agreement on spending and taxes, all that's left is a week of political posturing. what would happen politically if no deal was reached and the u.s. did default? would voters blame the president or the economy and republicans? the answer to do could determine who wins the 2012 election. also, the videotape, michele bachmann's husband denying he referred to gas as barbarians despite the tape that indicates differently. we have a full unedited tape on that. that tops our 2012 coverage tonight. >>> the drip of the rupert murdoch scandal continues. first rebeck ka brooks the head of his news
